ABSTRACT
In America mobility is seen as a measure of success, especially for persons born in rural areas, who are assumed to want to "move on up" as soon as possible. This pressure toward both social and spatial mobility is especially strong when the birthplace is an oppressed region such as Appalachia. Ironically, while the rest of the worm has disowned Appalachia, the residents of the mountains have repeatedly proclaimed the significance of cultural investment in land. This article approaches the concept of place, illuminating several variations on the theme, while particularly illustrating the strength of place claimed by Appalachia.
